Diamonds in the rough....

Presenting the Cougar Chicks and their manager at their first practice.  We love the new PA system.  Next on our schedule is voice lessons on Thursday night and a full Cougar Creek Band session on Sunday. It is time to start practicing the music for our version of Mardi Gras.  It will be here before we know it.

The Cougar Chicks have to take voice lessons so that we can fill in for Lady Isabella, (the lead singer for the chick section of the band) who abandons us every fall and goes back to Rhode Island.  It is a tough job and we are doing our best.   

Learn to play an instrument and sing.  What a great thing to do when you are retired.

I have to say that not all of our band members are retired.  Some of our younger members, Rhythm Gal, Bass Man and Trombone Man, help to keep us feeling like we are back in our 20's. 

One of our Band Manager's favorite lines from a song:  "singing seems to help a troubled soul".  It definitely  feels good to sing.  It's a great way to start or end your day. 

I think our lead song should be "I'm just an old chunk of coal, but I'm gonna be a diamond some day"?

You already are a rare gem, Connie! Have fun with voice lessons! Someday, maybe you can teach Ben to control his voice ;)
